British Values

As part of the Prevent strategy EDLounge Ltd will be promoting Fundamental British Values to reflect life in modern Britain.

These 4 fundamental British values are:

  • Democracy
  • Rule of Law
  • Respect & Tolerance
  • Individual Liberty

Fundamental British Values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK.

Fundamental British Values are not exclusive to being British and are shared by other democratic countries as a way of creating an orderly society, where individual members can feel safe, valued and can contribute for the good of themselves and others.

These are also important values for EDLounge as we always aim to create an inclusive and supportive learning environment to provide opportunities for all to Learn, Enjoy, Achieve and Progress (LEAP) .
